AUS vs. AFG, Match 39



The 39th match of the World Cup ODI will be played between Australia and Afghanistan at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The game is scheduled for November 7, 2023, at 2:00 PM. 

Both sides have played 7 games so far in this tournament out of which the Kangaroos have won 5 games and are placed in the 3rd position of the points table. They are on a 5 match-winning streak after losing their first two matches.

On the other side, Afghanistan won 4 of their 7 matches in this event so far, and are in the 6th position in the league standings. The Afghan Pathans are also on a 3-match winning streak. 

Both sides have clashed off only three times in the One Day International format where the Aussies managed to take the lead every time. Nevertheless looking into the current form of the Afghanistan team, we expect a tough fight from their side in this game.
